Marking History: Potter Place In Andover
Andover is home to the village of Potter Place, named after Richard Potter, a famous magician and ventriloquist.
And it’s in this village where the town’s Potter Place railroad station still stands.
The town’s historical society maintains the station.
It was located on the Northern Railroad, which ran from Boston, through White River Junction, and continued to Montreal.
As part of our occasional series, Marking History, NHPR’s Michael Brindley visits Andover, where a local historian explains the story behind Potter Place.
